Dennis Wideman scored a goal in Thursday's game against Chicago.

Wideman now has three goals in his last two contests. That brings him up to eight markers and 12 points in 20 games this season. His career-high is 13 goals, so he certainly has a chance of setting a new personal best.

Jonas Hiller allowed four goals on 22 shots in Calgary's 4-3 loss to Chicago.

The game was tied at three in the third period, but Hawks' forward Patrick Kane put Chicago ahead for good when he beat Hiller. The Flames' goaltender has now lost back-to-back starts for the first time since his two opening starts of the season. Hiller is 9-5-1 with a 2.45 goals-against-average and a.914 save percentage. Even with this loss, he's given Calgary steady goaltending for the first time in a long time.

Paul Byron scored a goal and an assist in Calgary's 4-3 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

It was the third multi-point game for Byron this season. The 25-year-old has been sneaky-productive this season. He has five goals this season and is on pace to hit the 20-goal mark. Odds are he won't keep producing at this pace, but he could be a decent add in deeper fantasy leagues.

Devin Setoguchi is expected to be a healthy scratch in Calgary's game against Chicago.

The 27-year-old's play has dropped significantly in the last few seasons. He has no points in 11 games this season.

Brian McGrattan will be a healthy scratch against Chicago on Thursday.

The 33-year-old tough guy has no points and four penalty minutes in seven games this season.
Nov 20 - 8:27 PM

Kris Russell won't play Thursday against Chicago because of a lower-body injury.

He wasn't in the Flames' lineup for Tuesday's game versus Anaheim either. Russell is listed as day-to-day.
Nov 20 - 1:36 PM

Updating an earlier item, Michael Ferland will be back in the lineup on Thursday.

He suffered a concussion during his NHL debut on Oct. 31 and he hasn't played since.
Nov 20 - 1:32 PM

Michael Ferland (concussion) looks like he'll return to Calgary's lineup on Thursday night.

He's projected to center the fourth line between Devin Setoguchi and Brandon Bollig. The Flames moved David Jones to injured reserve and Ferland should be expected to be activated to play.
Nov 20 - 1:01 PM

David Jones (upper body) has been placed on injured reserve.

He missed Tuesday's game due to the ailment. Jones has five points in 10 games this season, but he isn't worth stashing on your IR list.

The Calgary Flames are off to their best start since 2009-10.

The Flames current 12-6-2 record matches where they were at in 2009-10 through 20 games. Of course, Calgary ended up narrowly missing the playoffs that year, which emphasizes just how important it is for the Flames to maintain their momentum now. They weren't expected to make the playoffs this year, but with about a fourth of their season over, they have a real chance of advancing.

Markus Granlund had two assists in the Flames' 4-3 shootout victory Tuesday night.

It was Granlund's second straight multi-point game. He has three goals and eight points in nine contests in 2014-15.

Jiri Hudler scored a goal in Calgary's 4-3 shootout win to the Anaheim Ducks.

Hudler has six goals and 15 points in 19 contests in 2014-15. As long as he can stay healthy, he could reach the 60-point mark for the first time in his career.

Dennis Wideman scored twice in the Flames 4-3 SO win over Anaheim on Tuesday.

The goals were the veterans’ sixth and seventh of the season and came back-to-back in the third period of a whale of a game against a good Ducks team. Jiri Hudler scored the other goal for the Flames who are the leaders in the NHL when it comes to third period scoring. Markus Granlund stayed hot in picking up two assists in the win as well.
Nov 19 - 1:14 AM

Jonas Hiller made 24 saves in a 4-3 shootout win over his old team the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night.

It didn’t start out well for the Flames who fell behind 2-0 to the visitors before exploding for three goals in the third period. Hiller kept his squad in it as the Ducks out-shot the Flames 19-7 through the first two periods before the home side finally got their legs in the third. It had to feel good for Hiller to get the win after not leaving on the best of terms with Anaheim from last season’s post game goalie dramatics in the Duck net. Hiller has been a nice source of good goalie stats for fantasy owners who gambled on the vet late in fantasy drafts. It helps that the Flames look "for real" at this point in the season.
